PREMIERE: Rasmus juncker - norddrum [Kingdoms]
Copenhagen based artist Rasmus Juncker is about to release his debut album Ophold on Francis Harris´ label Kingdoms. Ophold has become a fusion of improvised sessions with various musicians who played everything independent from each other, experimental recording techniques and percussions, drums and synthesizers.
Listen to the premiere of the albums first track "Norddrum" here.
'Norddrum' starts proceedings - ethereal, grainy sounds merge and disassociate, as a distant rhythm gradually finds its way to the fore. "I've been experimenting a lot throughout the recording process. I explored how special microphones could be put at different places in the room to expand and colour the sound in new interesting ways. I used multiple microphones on the same sound sources and manipulated them into completely new sounds. I used noises from the recordings as a compositional tool and the room became absolutely essential for the creating of pieces." Juncker states.
